Genre: Science

Harry R. Matthews, PhD, Richard Freedland, PhD, Roger L. Miesfeld, PhD No scientific discipline has experienced such explosive growth or attracted so much popular attention over the past several decades as the study of life at the molecular level. The most quantitative of biological sciences, biochemistry studies the chemical components of living matter; the reactions these components undergo; the energetic changes that accompany such reactions; and the organization, replication, and expression of genes. Biochemistry: A Short Course introduces students to the fundamentals of this fascinating scientific discipline. Based on the authors' years of experience teaching graduate, undergraduate, and professional courses, this comprehensive introduction caters to the specific needs of researchers and students who must familiarize themselves rapidly with core concepts, principles, and theories. Students are afforded a unique opportunity to arrive at a full understanding of important current and pending achievements in the field, without having to wade through extraneous technical details and lengthy theoretical discussions more appropriate to a lab manual or specialized text. Identifies key concepts and covers the essentials for nonmajors and anyone looking for a concise review of modern aspects of biochemistry * Ideal for quick review, follows the critically acclaimed Short Course format, with abundant clear illustrations of key concepts * Includes closely related areas of molecular and cell biology * Features practical examples, including cancer and other diseases, drawn primarily from humans Here is the ideal textbook for medical students as well as graduates and undergraduates in biochemistry, medical biochemistry, and molecular biology courses. It is also an excellent selection for technicians and related professionals who want to review modern aspects of biochemistry in a concise format.

Bioinorganic Chemistry

ISBN: 0470191708
Release Date: 2007-10-12
Genre: Science

An updated, practical guide to bioinorganic chemistry Bioinorganic Chemistry: A Short Course, Second Edition provides the fundamentals of inorganic chemistry and biochemistry relevant to understanding bioinorganic topics. Rather than striving to provide a broad overview of the whole, rapidly expanding field, this resource provides essential background material, followed by detailed information on selected topics. The goal is to give readers the background, tools, and skills to research and study bioinorganic topics of special interest to them. This extensively updated premier reference and text: Presents review chapters on the essentials of inorganic chemistry and biochemistry Includes up-to-date information on instrumental and analytical techniques and computer-aided modeling and visualization programs Familiarizes readers with the primary literature sources and online resources Includes detailed coverage of Group 1 and 2 metal ions, concentrating on biological molecules that feature sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium ions Describes proteins and enzymes with iron-containing porphyrin ligand systems-myoglobin, hemoglobin, and the ubiquitous cytochrome metalloenzymes-and the non-heme, iron-containing proteins aconitase and methane monooxygenase Appropriate for one-semester bioinorganic chemistry courses for chemistry, biochemistry, and biology majors, this text is ideal for upper-level undergraduate and beginning graduate students. It is also a valuable reference for practitioners and researchers who need a general introduction to bioinorganic chemistry, as well as chemists who want an accessible desk reference.

Linguistische Diskursanalyse neue Perspektiven

Author: Dietrich Busse
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783531189109
Release Date: 2013-08-15
Genre: Social Science

Spätestens seit dem Erscheinen von Dietrich Busses und Wolfgang Teuberts Aufsatz „Ist Diskurs ein sprachwissenschaftliches Objekt?“ (1994) hat die Linguistische Diskursanalyse (manchmal mit dem Zusatz versehen „nach Foucault“) ein vielfältiges Echo in und außerhalb der Sprachwissenschaft gefunden. Insbesondere Sozialwissenschaftler sind mit dieser Forschungsrichtung in einen interdisziplinären Dialog eingetreten, der in den verschiedensten Foren und Forschungsverbünden bis heute anhält. Diesem Dialog soll im vorliegenden Band ebenso nachgegangen werden wie den Veränderungen in der Perspektive auf eine sprachwissenschaftlich fundierte Diskursanalyse, die sich durch teilweise auseinanderstrebende jüngere Auffassungen der beiden Herausgeber ergeben haben.

Genre: Science

"It’s not every day that one picks up a textbook that can claim to occupy a unique niche, given the multitude of scientific textbooks that are vying for a medical readership. However, with the recent publication of 'Pain-Free Biochemistry: An Essential Guide for the Health Sciences', which is specifically aimed at students of medicine and nursing, one could be left wondering just why nobody thought of this sooner.” –Irish Medical Times, September 14, 2010 If you are an undergraduate nursing or healthcare student about to embark on a short course in biochemistry and feel daunted by the prospect because you’ve done very little chemistry in the past, found it difficult or studied it so long ago you’ve forgotten it all, then this is the book for you. Equally, if clinical practice has brought you back to biochemistry just when you were hoping you could forget it all, this could be your lifeline! Having taught biochemistry to all sorts of students, from nurses to chemical engineers, for more than 30 years, Professor Paul Engel knows how to take the ‘pain’ out of your studies. For those who are a bit wobbly on molecules, bonds, ions, etc. this text also has just enough supporting chemistry slipped in where appropriate to help things make sense. Accessible, enjoyable to read and packed with a wealth of clinical examples from heart disease to cancer and blood clotting to antibiotics, this handy textbook will reveal how biochemistry is fundamental to clinical practice and everyday life. Drugs, diet, disease, DNA – it all comes down to biochemistry. Key Features: Easy to digest: ‘Bite sized’ topics lead you through essential biochemistry without going into intimidating detail. Doesn’t assume you’ve studied chemistry before: Focuses on key concepts and provides all the basic chemistry you might need. Colour coded: Specially designed so you can see, at a glance, which chapters focus on underpinning chemistry, which on basic biochemistry and which on clinical applications. Clinically relevant:Topical examples throughout the text show how getting to grips with biochemistry will help you succeed in healthcare practice. Reinforces your learning: Includes numerous self-test questions with answers throughout. Companion website includes: A complete set of figures from within the book. Extended MCQs with answers and further explanation where relevant.
